My name is Christopher Gulick.
I specialize in kinetic, hanging sculpture. My work is available for gallery/museum exhibition, collection acquisition and site specific commission.
My primary focus is the visual kinetics of sculpture.
Open air always provides a blank canvas for movement of line, shape and color. Architectural lines and the motion of nature are primary inspiration for my work. My designs come from three basic mindsets: mechanical, organic, or a combination of the two. The design goal is building the piece to appear kinetic to the eye, even when the work is static.
Works are typically suspended, but some are also wall mounted and free standing. I work on site-specific commissions as well as my own studio projects. Sizes vary from one foot in diameter (air space displacement) to 15 feet or more for a single piece. Large scale works are built with an associate fabricator.
Materials range from bronze rod, aluminum, stainless steel or alloy types of rod for the “armatures”. Materials for “ballast” (or positive space) vary from sheet metal to acrylic to found material objects.
